Philodendron melanochrysum (cutting)


It is an honor to present one of the BEST climbing foliage plants. Aka Black Gold philodendron has heart-shaped leaves that are typically 25 cm long, but in ideal conditions they can grow even longer. Young plants have smaller, broader, copper-red leaves, but when established they are quite superb; they have a velvety sheen on the blackish-green surface, and beautiful, pale green veins. The rare, insignificant flowers are best removed. Grow it up a moss pole and spray regularly to create humidity. Susceptible to scale insects and red spider mites.

TO DO WHEN U GET IT:
  - Put the loved one in a pot that is preferably not bigger than 11cm wide. 
  - Add a mix of soil with good drainage. Orchid mix, barch, perlite etc is great! I usually go at least 30% of the material that adds to drainage. 
  - Moist the inside of a see through plastic bag and put it over the plant. This encloses moisture that is important and will decrease the stress of the plant. 
  - Put the plant in a bright location but not in direct sunlight. 
  - I usually leave the plastic bag on for a week or two and then I spray it alot and keep trays of water nearby. Enjoy!

Rather easy to care for.

Does not get too big in captivity since every and all are taking cuttings from it. But if it gets to grow freely in good conditions the leafs can get HUGE.

 

Water freely when in full growth and add a monthly liquid feed. Let dry out between waterings during winter. 

Likes it bright but not direct sunlight.
